Meet at the Tom's Thumb Trailhead. The trail itself is considered strenuous (see stats below!). This hike is a fitness hike - we'll be moving at a good clip - and please note that there will be no sweep. If you are unfamiliar with the route, please prepare yourself for the possibility that you could be separated from the group and may need to self-guide. There are maps available at the trailhead.
Configuration: out and back
Distance: 4 miles
Elevation gain: around 1,200 feet
Facilities: restrooms, no water
Warning: we live in a desert where you WILL sweat out a lot of water very quickly trying to keep your body cool. Even though we are leaving early in the morning you still need to bring water with you. There is no formula for how much water you will need so ALWAYS err on the side of caution.
NOTE: every hike involves a certain level of risk, which you must take on completely. I am a volunteer organizer, not a hike guide of any sort. You must think ahead, gauge your ability, bring the things you will need, and be aware that something could go wrong.
